Alicia Vikander announces that shooting of the new Tomb Raider movie will likely be next year.
The Swedish actress and Oscar winner, Alicia Vikander has made a recent statement to Entertainment Weekly where she states that she is already in constant conversations with the director of the sequel to the film Tomb Raider, Misha Green:
"It's pretty amazing - we're, like, the same age!" Vikander says. "I was like, 'Oh, I'm just now on a Zoom with an extremely talented woman that I think has done some incredible work.' It would be so amazing if we get to go and do this very big-ass film together, going to kick some ass in front of the camera and behind the camera, you know? "
"The plan was for us to start making one this year. Of course, due to the [pandemic] situation, that's now very different," Vikander told Good Morning America of the slated Tomb Raider sequel in late 2020. "We're still in discussions about it, so I hope we can probably get to it next year. "
In addition, Alicia Vikander adds that she hopes to have as much fun shooting the sequel as she did during the first part and that she is excited to play the iconic role character.
